Metallica’s long-time drummer and famous music personality, Lars Ulrich, has shared a really rare childhood photo of himself via his verified and official Instagram account.

The photo was taken in 1976 when he was a student in 6th grade. You can easily notice that he was having powerful yellow hairs but his teeth look like having a big problem because they were having dental braces.

Lars Ulrich has written a meaningful message with the photo for today’s students and he explained what they need to do in this message.

Here’s what Lars captioned:

“Don’t forget to brush your hair and smile for your school photo!

Around 76’ … 6th grade give or take!

#wanna #tbt.”

A fan named Steria Mortis wrote a comment:

“Look at that handsome little man.”

Another fan named Stephanie Elizabeth said this:

“With no idea what a badass drummer you’d become!”
